Counselors in Training Welcome!


We are looking for youth ages 13-18 to support O-Academy as Counselors in Training (CITs). CITs are teenaged-youth with a piqued interest in nature and the outdoors. These youth are 'natural' leaders and are interested in guiding younger youth who share similar interests. CITs will gain experience in facilitating natural science programming, performing environmental skills, and assisting young people.

Youth interested in becoming an O-Academy CIT can apply HERE by April 29, 2022 at 11:59p EST.
